>>> good evening from new york. the month of march we learned today not only saw america add jobs but was the best month for job creation in three years. republicans responded by asking why president obama is doing nothing about jobs. the numbers themselves are nothing spectacular on their own, but compared to the past two years they represent a seed change in the economic direction. 162,000 more americans went to work in march than did the month before. and it turns out revises figures show that january, too, had seen an increase in jobs, rather than the loss earlier reported. unemployment remains unchanged at 9.7%. speaking at a north carolina battery plant expanding at hiring new workers, president obama told employees a lottery mains to be done to bring america's economy all the way back. but we are beginning to turn the corner. >> just one year ago we were losing more than 700,000 jobs each month. but the tough measures that we took, measures that were necessary, even though sometimes they were unpopular have broken this and are helping us to climb out of this recession. we'v

into a socialist united states. today, the heritage foundation the conservative think tank here said america is no longer a free nation. it's a mostly free nation. they rank countries every year and they dropped america. so now we're living in a not so free united states according to the heritage foundation. people are picking up on this and their paranoia is really kicking in. there was a lot of anticipation about what the health care bill would do. no one is waiting to see that. they're already acting as if it was the worst-case scenario. first, we had obama, the foreigner, the guy wasn't born here, coming in and taking over the government. creating a regime as rush limbaugh calls it. now he's imposing socialism. anybody who lives in a socialist country, whether europe or any place else would be laughing at this as a notion of socialism. there is a -- this -- this has become the battle front for people who are worried about the very nature of this country. i think ray lot of the worry is irrational, but they're directing it at this. >> steve? >> one thing i think we've got to keep in mind,

process. we've had the nuclear posture review that came out and made the same statement, that america's threats tend to be more with nonstate actors than with states today. we had the u.s./russia s.t.a.r.t. agreement and all of this is flowing into an every five year rue view of the nuclear proliferation treaty, and i think right now they're trying to say we're getting back into building global institutions and working collaboratively with other nations to move security up and to try to show that america can contribute in positive ways to the global community, rather than destabilizing global affairs. >> that treaty amendment called on nations to protect their own nuclear materials, essentially at their own discretion, which begs this question. why in this supposedly post 9/11 world has it taken more than eight years to address the nuclear terrorist threat specifically? >> well, there are two things going on. first, under the leadership of people like john bolton, who used to be under secretary of state for arms control in the bush administration also served as ambassador of the unite
in america, economics is the beginning and the end of most successful political endeavors. let's remember that arizona was the last state to approve a national holiday for martin luther king. and one of the things they did, it cost them hundreds of millions of dollars, when the african-american community across this country called for boycotts. finally, they were 50th, but they did it. they did it because they risked economics in the state of arizona. because, as you have stated, look, when the police intervene with me or with you or with anyone, it should be on the basis of our conduct. our behavior. not the country they suspect we came from and whether or not we were born here or not. that -- i'll tell you something. the criminal element, those human smugglers, the drug dealers, the rapists, those causing so much damage in arizona and across this country, they've got to be happy with this law. because what is going to happen is the eyes, the ears, that the police need so much of the community in general, so that they can combat crime, they're going to cause a division between the people
to figure out who among them is really ready to say no, america does not need to reform wall street. president obama today took on two of the story lines republicans have advanced about the democratic bills, sometimes even before the bills were written. first the republican claim that the senate bill includes future bailouts for the banks, encouraging them to take more risks. in fact, the bill forces the banks to create a fund that would be used for liquidating banks. >> what's not legitimate is to suggest that somehow the legislation being proposed is going to encourage future taxpayer bailouts, as some have claimed. that makes for a good sound bite, but it's not factually accurate. it is not true. in fact, the system as it stands -- [ applause ] the system as it stands is what led to a series of massive costly taxpayer bailouts, and it's only with reform that we can avoid a similar outcome in the future. in other words, a vote for reform is a vote to put a stop to taxpayer-funded bailouts. that's the truth. >> president obama also addressed the other republican argument, a perenni

they're going to get past this one. >> well, they're america's sweethearts, i guess they'll get back together again. fox makes these tea parties a hell of a lot more money with cheerleading than ticket sales. why is that not a problem for fox or for mr. murdoch? >> it should be a problem for fox and it should be a problem for mr. murdoch. it hasn't been because americans have largely become desensitized to what we're seeing from fox news as the unprecedented, you know, politicization of our news. it's operating as a political campaign not a news organization. so as you look at this, i think what's happening now is in the wake of murdoch's comments last week or my colleague in the question put to mr. murdoch, there's been a lot more heat from the media on fox and their relationship with the tea party. and fox really needs to maintain this illusion of journalistic credibility to be able to continue to operate as a 24/7 political campaign that you use a a fear tactics, that deliberately lies to their viewers and the american people. so for them, i think it's an important business decisi
